Psalm 46

God is a refuge and holdfast
An abiding presence and guiding voice
Calling us to prophetic action and joyous hope
Even though the natural world is used a commodity
Even though the ecosystems are in danger

The Eternal One is present
The God of all living creatures is our stronghold

The rivers provide water for the land
The very ground where God dwells
God is within, it shouldn’t be destroyed
The sacred earth is the body of God
Corporations exploit; materialism consumes
God’s voice cries out for the health of all Creation

Please, consider the works of the Eternal
The complexity of God’s wondrous Creation
Luring chaos to gather together in unity
Beckoning forth an interdependent web out of anarchy
Sustaining life in this delicate ecosystem
“Be still and know that I am God, whose body is all around you.”

The Eternal One is present
The God of all living creatures is our stronghold
